"I like your hat." That's what Keith Urban said to me when he saw the GoPro I was wearing on my head during the 2015 CMA Music Festival.
For four steamy days in June, I mounted a GoPro to my trusty – yet very worn – Atlanta Braves hat and set off to document the annual festivities in Nashville. I looked like a goofball the entire time and got many confused looks from some of the 85,000 fans in attendance – but it was totally worth it! I wasn't expecting the musicians to be too surprised, given how ubiquitous GoPro cameras are these days, but I was quickly proven wrong and treated to some delightful reactions.

Four days, 11 stages, 424 acts, more than 60,000 fans – the sheer volume of activities and people at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville last weekend was truly mind-blowing. We were there, and from the pressroom and LP Field to the riverfront, we were determined to see CMA Fest from a brand new angle.

Taylor Swift may love the No. 13, but it has proven to be no friend to Chris Young.
After hosting over 500 fans at his 13th annual fan club party Thursday night aboard the General Jackson showboat in Nashville, the singer returned home and cut his hand while making himself a late-night dinner.
He was taken immediately to a Nashville-area hospital where doctors assessed his injury. As a result, Young canceled his planned four-hour fan autograph session scheduled for Friday during the CMA Music Festival.
He is expected to make a full recovery and will return to the stage Saturday night for his performance at LP Field.
